WASHINGTON -- Warning to romantics and children-at-heart: You'll want to grab a tissue for this one.

Vas Alli wanted to make his fiancée's Christmas extra-special. Considering he proposed on Christmas Eve the year before, he had a lot to live up to.

"After a month of research and looking through over 10,000 vintage teddy bears on online, I was able to find clues to reconstruct her childhood teddy bear, 'Whitey,'" says Alli on his YouTube page.

After taking Whitey to a teddy-bear hospital - no, really, to the Secaucus Doll and Teddy Bear Hospital - he was back in business.

Watch the video to see Jessica's touching reaction to seeing her long-lost childhood friend.
